Despite some criticism -- I think deserved -- about the nominations process and how scattered parts of it have become, I think most of the cited works on the following list are considerable and noteworthy, or are at least arguably so. I'm particularly happy to see Jim Woodring's recent work receive praise; I think North American comics audiences may take Woodring slightly for granted at this point, which is an astounding thing to suggest but there it is. His last two books would be an entire, distinguished career for many cartoonists. I look forward to the forthcoming, sure-to-be-quality tomes from Guy Delisle and Cyril Pedrosa. The award to the Latvian collective kuš! made me smile.
